Design Technology & Engineering Teaching Resources is the home of quality professional teaching & learning resources dedicated to Design Technology (DT) and Engineering.
In the spirit of the Society for Education and Training’s professional standard on collaboration this website was set up to share ideas with other teachers and educators in the design technology and engineering subject field.
New overarching professional standards for teachers, tutors and trainers in the lifelong learning sector –ITTTE Standards
About the author:
Michael Oyebode, or Mr Oyebode to his students, qualified as a Teacher of Design Technology and Engineering in July 2015 at the University of Huddersfield.
Michael’s subject knowledge was initially obtained on his bachelors degree back in 2003 having studied BSc (Hons) in Engineering Product Design at London South Bank University. He keeps up to date with current subject knowledge by personal research and study. He is also a member of a number of organisations including the Institution of Engineering Designers (IED) and The Design and Technology Association.
Michael used to be a web designer and digital marketer for over 10 years before he trained as a Teacher. He’s passionate about design, technology and gadgets. He also has a particular interest in automotive design and engineering.

Primary behaviour is the behaviour you want a student to stop, e.g. Sally talking to Harry when you’re addressing the class. The secondary behaviour is the defensive response you get when you challenge the primary behaviour: “I was only helping Harry with his work. You’re always picking on me.”
Secondary behaviour will often include a lot of huffing and puffing, eye rolling and defiant body language. It’s either defensiveness or retaliation or a mixture of both. If you let it, it can wind you up more than the primary behaviour. Not only that, but it will distract you from the reason you’re talking to the student in the first place: to deal with the primary behaviour.
So, if the secondary behaviour is sufficiently low level (and it normally is), don’t react. Instead, acknowledge the student’s view and then calmly redirect the student to the desired behaviour:
“Sally, it may well be that you were helping Harry, but now I want you to turn around and give me all your attention. Thank you.”

Glance Clock is the world’s first smart clock to display information from all your wearables, smart home devices and web services.
GLANCE CLOCK TECHNOLOGY
1. CLOUD PLATFORM THAT WORKS WITH STREAMS OF TRIGGERS AND DATA
Glance Clock requests and receives data from the Glance Cloud. Using 3rd party integrations the cloud gets data and triggers to analyze them by machine learning algorithms. These algorithms recognize patterns and process incoming data streams according to those patterns. This allows the Glance Clock to determine what data to display, and when to display it for each individual person.
2. MOBILE APP THAT ASSISTS TO SET UP SETTINGS
Using our free Mobile App (iOS and Android), users can set up integrations with 3rd party services. The App allows the user to choose and customize the way data will be displayed. See the list of available integrations in the App accompanying numerous visual options and sound effects for displaying data and sending notifications to the user. Our free App provides a BLE connection with the Glance Clock triggering a display by the proximity of the user.
3. THE GLANCE CLOCK WITH GLANCEABLE DISPLAY
The Glance Clock looks like a normal contemporary clock with mechanical hands. It displays data sent from the cloud via the mobile app, and always shows the current time. The Glance Clock has Bluetooth radio to communicate and receive data from the cloud. It has a color-LED backlit display and an array of white LEDs to display text data. Data can be displayed in three basic ways: whole screen blinking, displaying colored arcs, and displaying segments. With possible combinations of all three.
The OnePlus 3 features a new metal back design, similar to that of an HTC M9 or later, with anodised aluminium and curved edges. The device is available in two colours, Graphite (black/grey) and Soft Gold (white/gold, available soon globally). Additionally, users can purchase protective covers in Kevlar or black apricot wood,bamboo, rosewood, and sandstone which takes care of the camera hump and evens it with the phone.
The device is slightly smaller than its predecessor, the OnePlus 2. It’s 2.5mm thinner, 0.9mm shorter, and 0.2mm narrower, but still has the same screen size, at 5.5in (139.7mm) across diagonally. The display is still 1920x1080p, comparable to that of the previous two models, but the 3 is the first flagship OnePlus to have an optic AMOLED display. As is typical for most smartphones, the OnePlus 3 features Corning Gorilla Glass 4 protection.
